Cyberpunk 2077: DLC popping up on the Epic Game Store for a little while, some were free

Cyberpunk 2077

Through a report on Reddit and then bounced on Neogaf, we have the opportunity to see that a series of DLCs for Cyberpunk 2077, the controversial CD Projekt RED game, have appeared on the Epic Games Store. Some of these should also be free, as indicated.

We already knew that the game would receive a number of DLCs and, later, expansions as well. From the beginning, in fact, CD Projekt RED had signaled to players that they could expect a support similar to that of The Witcher 3. In total, 10 free DLCs and 3 paid DLCs appeared through the Epic Games Store: the latter, however. they have neither name nor price.

Cyberpunk 2077's free DLCs are marked with these nomenclatures:

Ripperdocs Expansion Body Shops Expansion Fashion Forward Expansion Gangs of Night City Body of Chrome Rides of the Dark Future The Relic Neck Deep Night City Expansion

As you can see, some of these alleged Cyberpunk 2077 free DLCs have names very similar to promotional videos uploaded in the past from CD Projekt's game channel RED. According to some users on NeoGAF, it is possible that these DLCs should have been part of the full game. The development team, however, would have decided to postpone them.

For now, of course, this is only a rumor / leak, nothing official. Waiting for new information, we would like to inform you that patch 1.2 is being tested, here is the release note before launch.


Ten ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Free DLC Names May Have Leaked

Cyberpunk 2077


As we all sit around and wait for Cyberpunk 2077’s 1.2 patch which may or may not make it out in the next few days here before the end of the month, there allegedly may be a look at coming future DLC to the game, at least in name only.

I am taking this with a mountain of salt as the sourcing on this is a little all over the place. A redditor, u/PricklyAssassin, claims to have found these names within the developer backend of the Epic Game Store. This is different than past Cyberpunk “leaks” about the game’s rocky development that were elaborate stories that CDPR itself shut down. This is just a list of ten potential DLC names, presumably the free ones that are supposed to be coming out within the next few months.

Here are the names, and what I think they could be focused on:

Ripperdocs Expansion – This may be the “plastic surgery” expansion that lets us change our appearance past the character creator. Or it could be something with new cyberware.

Body Shops Expansion – This could also be a plastic surgery expansion. Or it could be a way to customize cars.

Fashion Forward Expansion – This seems pretty obvious and might just be new clothing options, but also hopefully QoL things like previewing clothing or transmog.

Cyberpunk 404

Gangs of Night City – This could be a story thing, or perhaps the ability to reactivate a bunch of gang encounters all over the city after you clear them.

Body of Chrome – Given that a hugely popular mod is the ability to add more visual cyberware to your body, including full Lizzy Wizzy style chrome, that’s my guess for what this could be. Or it could be the name of a Lizzy Wizzy mission.

Rides of the Dark Future – New cars, which seems pretty obvious. Would love to see a garage.

The Relic – Some are guessing this could tie into the sixth ability/stat slot in the game that is currently blank, but who knows.

Neck Deep – No idea. Sounds like a mission name.

Night City Expansion – Maybe a generic name for all of this, or a literal map expansion to some extent.

Unnamed DLC - ?

So, that’s what I can gather from these. They could be entirely made up and just be a “wishlist” of content, and while I’ve certainly seen more elaborate fakes in my time, I don’t know, I have a feeling this could be legit. I do expect the free DLC of the game to focus mostly on cosmetic additions or things like new clothes or cars or guns, with a handful of missions, and this list would make some amount of sense in that regard.

We are supposed to get free DLC before the second half of the year according to the very nebulous roadmap CDPR released a few months ago, and we’re about halfway to that deadline already. For now, we still need that patch to come, and it’s possible when it does, people will be able to extract more potential DLC info from those files. I suppose it’s also possible CDPR could surprise drop some free DLC alongside this patch, but I’m going to absolutely not get my hopes up for that. Stay tuned.
